Cerebritos

WHAT IT MEANS: “Cerebritos” means “little brains” in Spanish. And that’s exactly what Cerebritos is all about: instilling a command and love of the Spanish language in little brains while the mind is at its most malleable.


HOW IT WORKS: One word: Immersion. That means no translation and no memorization. Just seamless acquisition of a second language involving movement, intentional listening, motor skills, and productive play.

Math Is Everywhere.

Contributed by Patrick Neary

There is something lurking in the background. Its nonchalance cannot be outdone; its importance to our existence is immense. It is the path cut out for you in the woods, and it is the troll waiting to stop you when you stray from the trail. It is Math, and it is out there shaping the world around you.

When I was a freshman in college, I had this idea that my professors knew something that they weren’t telling me–that on the day of my graduation they would come up and say, “Do you see [this] now?” In a way, they kind of did. I realize, of course, that it wasn’t one short concise thing that they could relate in a sentence. It was four years of mathematics. It was the way they showed me how to think. It was the way they taught me how math comes together as you move further into it. It was the beauty of the structure.

I see the world differently than before. Granted, I still envision a troll in the woods when I think about math, but now I know that there are hundreds–no, thousands–of trolls out in those mental woods.  I know that I could continue to study mathematics for the rest of my days and still not know all there is to know. I wonder what I will see after another four years.

So many people turn away from mathematics because of a poor experience or because they have to work a little harder at it. I think we should all strive to change that, because math ROCKS. Come check out the trolls, people–they’re freakin’ delightful!

I wish for everyone to see what I see.

Got math?

So You Say You’re Not A Math Person!?

This is a contribution by Steve Gretz.

I’m not known as an overly positive person, so the confession of a pet peeve shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone, but consider yourself warned.  Here goes:

I hate it when people say, “I’m just not a math person.” Continue Reading »
